This map of the Caribbean includes the southern tip of Florida and the coastlines of Honduras, Nicaragua, and northern South America. It contains a dense listing of place names, mountain ranges, rivers, and navigational hazards, more than most charts from this period. There is particularly good detail of Cuba, Jamaica and Hispaniola.
A crisp impression on watermarked paper with very minor soiling and some extraneous creases in the top blank margin.
